Having no longer wish to attempt the Cambridge rush hour nonsense we decided to try Norwich for a trip to a smaller venue and what a great surprise and experience we had. You can get seat allocations so there is no rushing like other small...More

Among a mixed audience of students, artists, theatre visitors, city shoppers. There is a great variety of people, beers and coffee. Genuine pleasant place to be.

Visited last night to see Burton. A walk through the life of Richard Burton. Good show at a great venue. There don't appear to be any poor seats. The back row is not that far back and has great legroom if you want to stretch...More

My husband and me saw a show here and have seen many before. It's one of my favourite as it's so small so you get to be close up with whoever is on stage . We tend to allow the bar linked with the venue...More
